Krafty Lime is Back!

Did you guess what my son’s favorite project was? I will show you in a minute and then you can tell me what you think.

First, I want to show you a couple of cards I made using the Krafty Lime Kit from Dixie Pieces.


Using my Silhouette I cut some fish charms from a patterned paper that is included in the Krafty Lime kit. I mounted them onto Sticky Paper and then added glitter for the outline. I used the enclosed hooks to attach the fish to a piece of string that was taken from the jute mesh included in the kit.

P K Glitz has some really pretty Art Acetates that make beautiful embellishments.I used the Pumpkin Art Acetate with glitter and used it as my main focal image on this card. I love how the Krafty Lime kit and P K Glitz glitters and Art Acetates compliment each other.

Here is my son’s favorite project. He had asked me if I had a frame that he could put his girlfriend’s picture in. .He liked this wooden frame that I had in my stash so while he was at work, I dressed it up a bit. I wasn’t sure how he would like all of the glitter and bling but he really loved it and has it proudly displayed on his desk.

The flower was created using my Silhouette to cut the base flower from Sticky Paper and adding Lemonade glitter to the paper. With a hammer, I smashed one of the bottle caps that was included in the kit and then embossed it with E P Max. I added some of the die cuts and embellishments from the kit and my flower was finished.


After covering the frame with papers from the Krafty Lime kit, I layered some of the jute mesh along the bottom, adhering it with Craft Glue. I then altered the letters by using the Ritzy Ditzy Glitz and outlining each one with a pen.
